    I'm running both 7.04 and 7.10 in VMware. I followed the install procedure
    Titled: How To Set Up VMware Tools On Various Linux Distributions

    I used the the procedure for 7.10, it installed, ok!
    but I cant copy & paste!

    is there a fix available?

    Are there any errors in your logs?

    No!.... thats strange part. Both times the install went flawlessly.
    both version showed the VMware Tools menu when you type
    "vmware-toolbox" into terminal
    Except, that the 7.10 version would NOT copy and paste.

    Today however when I started 7.10, I could copy and paste between it an XP
    But I could NOT copy and paste using 7.04.

    For some strange reason things have reversed. :(

    tearing hair out wont help either :)

    Did another cold reboot:

    Now I see yesterdays install of Vmware Tools is already outdated today,
    that why I could NOT copy and paste using 7.04.

    Now maybe tomorrow I'll find out 7.10 is also outdated :)
    right now all is OK
